As you assemble your signage presentation, you will use the Timeline tool to see a sequential playlist of your content and resources you have chosen. The final product of your signage presentation will be represented by these sequential timelines.
The Resources tool enables you to insert a variety of multimedia files into your presentation. These files, which are then uploaded to your SignagePlayer, include pictures, videos, sounds, and other components and scenes. We have also provided you with a shared network portal that provides you with hundreds of complete graphics and templates that you are free to use.
The Stations is the tool that you use to remotely control all of the Signage Players. Through Stations, you can play, pause, stop, reboot your system, update the software, retrieve data and statistics, and much more. And the best part is that you don’t even have to move from your desktop. You can even install SignagePlayers halfway across the world, then use Stations in SignageStudio to control all of your SignagePlayers from your desktop.
Do you want to include a rolling news feed at the bottom of your screen? Or play ads about specials in your restaurant, while simultaneously playing live TV on the other half of the screen? The Components tool can help you put these presentations together. We have programmed several valuable tools, including: RSS feeds (news, weather, video podcasts, and more); live TV; clocks; stock tickers; and more.
Screen Divisions (zones)
Through the Screen Divisions tool, you can separate your screen into several distinct areas, referred to as zones. These areas, or zones, are assigned a unique channel number with a corresponding color for quick and easy visual identification.
If you want to design a simple custom object for use in your presentation, you can use the Designer tool. This application is a Lite Flash-like editor which enables you to create animations and position them in your screen according to your needs. Including over 120 features, this Designer tool presents a complete scene, which is placed on the timeline when finished.
With the Sequencer tool, you can manually set the order of the playlist within your timelines by a simple drag-and-drop method.
We weren’t lying when we said the possibilities were endless. Using CSS tool, you can choose a custom color and font scheme. This CSS tool was designed to be flexible to match your styling preferences without sacrificing simplicity of use.
Do you need to display only the breakfast menu in the morning? The lunch orders in the middle of the day, and dinner choices throughout the evening? No problem. With the Scheduler, you can set your timelines to play at any time of the day or night. You can even choose to play some presentations on weekdays, and others on weekends. Your Digital Signage presentations will play only between the chosen start and stop times.
Viewing your files in an organized fashion is made easy by the Catalog tool. Within the Catalog, your screen can display an unlimited number of files within a common format. You can view your files using sub-players such as carousels, book flipping, 3D floaters and more.
Develop content quickly with the aid of pre-made digital signage content templates. Choose a template that relates to your specific industry and have relevant and unique content created within minutes. View crafted content thumbnails for easy channel preview.
The software supports all flash formats, including: SWF, FLV, MPEG4, MP3, AAC, JPG, GIF, and PNG. Use Adobe’s Creative Suite to enhance the impact of your signage content (e.g. Flash, Illustrator, Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop).
Drag and drop your content assets directly into the playlist in the order you desire. Schedule or loop your content by inputting the files of your choice into the content schedule. Run content schedule in screen zones independently.
Dynamic Media Feeds
Input news, stocks, video podcasts, and weather via RSS and our existing Flash templates. Bevel, emboss, fade, and drop shadow your content. Add graphs, charts, and data. Use your own .swf to pull from live external sources. Integrate screen zones with Yahoo maps, Flickr, and date/time widgets for relevant content display.
Since content is stored locally on the signage player, your desired assets are played without a continuous connection to the network. The digital signage ervers are co-located in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. Your content is uploaded to the server in closest geographic proximity to the player you are deploying content to. Signage players are set to regularly sync with the nearest co-located server.
Role Based Administration
Give your users various levels of remote access to the server’s content management system. The software allows you to control not only which screens administrators can access for content upload and scheduling but also allows you to limit which screen zones they can access as well. Our role-based administration technology is an undisputed leader in digital sign content management.
We use an industry standard 128 bit signed and approved SSL certificate for your player application. Players authenticate with server for validation and approval. Simply put, you are purchasing a secure digital sign solution.
TV Tuner Card Support
Input live television, cable, satellite, and auxiliary channels as a zone on your digital signage display. Simply install our signage software onto a media player that has a TV tuner card and you’re off and running.
